Dating your children in the place of your spouse is deadly to your marriage. Your children are important, but don’t lose site of your spouse in the midst of your children.

Dating your children in the place of your spouse happens when you spend more time meeting the needs, wants and desires of your children and neglect to meet the needs, wants, and desires of your spouse for an extended period of time. You should teach, love, and care for your children, but don’t let your marriage fall apart while doing so.

You and your spouse need to find the time to spend together as often as possible. Go out on a date without the children, even if it has to be in a separate room in the house away from them. Try sending them to bed early sometimes, so that you and your spouse can be alone with each other when possible.  If you don’t spend time together, you just might fall apart and allow the enemy to creep in to let another person meet the needs, wants, and desires of your spouse.

We should love our children; but while doing so, please do not forget to love your spouse. We may not purposely do this, so keep in mind that your spouse needs love too.

Consider the following scriptures –

Proverbs 5:19 a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love. (ESV)

Song of Solomon 2:17 Until the day breaks and the shadows flee, turn, my lover, and be like a gazelle or like a young stag on the rugged hills.

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, (NASB)
